Mombasa, KENYA: American gospel artiste Donnie McClurkin was was on Tuesday morning stranded at the Moi International Airport in Mombasa  after landing in the country.

Donnie who is currently in the country for the 25th silver Word Explosion Conference at the Jesus Celebration Centre church in Bamburi landed in the country at 12:53 am but he did not find anyone to pick him up.

“I landed in Mombasa, Kenya at 12:53 am Tuesday, and no one is here for me and my sister from the ministry! (We’ve been) approached by a few illegal guys driving their own cars, trying to take our own luggage cart to their car. It has been almost an hour and I’m outside (the airport waiting lounge) in Mombasa. There are no taxis or transportation at 2am in the morning. Two percent battery life left on my phone, and no plugs! Please pray for me” Donnie wrote on his Instagram account.

The Instagram post was later on deleted but part of the post was still showing on his twitter handle.

According to sources at Jesus Celebration Centre, Donnie was expected to arrive on Wednesday morning but arrived earlier on Tuesday morning.

However, the source also told Baraka FM that the situation was now under control and he was being hosted at one of Mombasa’s top hotels.

Donnie is among the top gospel musicians slated to perform at the week-long event alongside fellow American minister Marvin Winans and local acts such as Emmy Kosgei and Rosy Ohon.

The event which kicked off on Monday and is scheduled to wind off on Sunday is an annual international and interdenominational Pastors and leaders conference that hosts Christians from all over Kenya and the world.
